Thank you for your interest in using our Disclosure service.

Any organisation needing to process less than 20 AccessNI checks a year for their workers needs to appoint an 'umbrella' organisation approved by the AccessNI to process checks on their behalf, however not all umbrella organisations offer the same levels of service support. Organisations that do choose to become a Registered Body, can still join thirtyone:eight in membership. To find out more about our services and to register use the links below.
